A few days back, I mentioned this article on ThatsFit.com entitled “15 Ways To Fight, Fix, and Minimize Cellulite.”
Besides recommendation Number 1 about foam rollers, recommendation Number 14 also caught my attention: Live in a Red Light District. The author isn’t suggesting a move to Amsterdam. Instead, she is referring to the ability of red light bulbs to camouflage cellulite-related bumps and waves.
According to the article, red light makes your body look sexier and stronger. The author even interviews a fitness instructor at a pole dancing studio who attests that red lights are used in their classrooms so clients will be more comfortable and confident with their bodies during the lessons.
“Buy red light bulbs in any hardware store and place them in your bedroom,” the author urges.
My question is, as much as we all hate looking at our own cellulite, would you go so far as to heed this advice? I can see how a red light bulb might be fun for a night or two, but wouldn’t it be a nuisance once the novelty wears off? While we’re at it, is a red light bulb more effective than simple candlelight in its ability to gloss over imperfections?
Moreover, how does a red light bulb make the cut for the top 15 ways to handle the blight? Yet again, I’m disappointed with the quality of information contained in articles about cellulite. There has to be more to it than this, don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
